After years of living in the west, where fire was treated as a very serious threat, I find fires very frightening. We had one burn up to 100 metres of our house when I first moved to Julia Creek in the 70's. That was very scary. All the men where out fighting more than 50 fires that night and there was only me and another female friend left at home. We turned on every hose around the house and just started wetting everything down. Fortunately for us the wind turned and the fire burned back on itself. I thanked God that night.
Here are some photos taken on our foggy/smoky morning walk.
